Newsletter Tool on

Update (16 Nov 2016): The Newsletter function on will be discontinued effective December 31, 2016. Please use other means of communicating newsletter information to ward and stake members, such as printed newsletters, email, or other online programs. Guidelines for using online resources in Church callings may be found at

Newsletter is a new tool coming to that provides a blog-like site that wards and stakes can use to provide local news to members. This tool will replace the “News and Information” feature that existed on the classic local unit website and will provide a digital alternative to the paper newsletters that organizations typically create.

The tool is available for people to begin testing.

To learn more about what the Newsletter tool will do, or to sign up to beta test the tool, see the article “Newsletter, a New Tool To Be Released into Beta Mid-February.”

    This tool is nice, but if you really want to fix communications in my ward there would be some sort of email list tool.

    Most of my ward just copies and pastes a long list of addresses into the ‘To’ field of the email. We’ve had so many problems with email: problems with confidential emails going to the wrong groups of people, getting emails multiple times, people using ward emails for personal use, people replying to all with personal info, emails getting forwarded inappropriately, etc.

    We are currently evaluating many possible solutions to fix the communication issue within wards and stakes, one of which is providing email capabilities. Watch the ldstech forums for future announcements about this topic.
